HC Deb 08 February 1966 vol 724 c57W
Mr. Armstrong

asked the Postmaster-General if he will define the area of the North-East which will be able to receive B.B.C. 2 when the service opens there in the spring of this year.

Mr. Benn

The B.B.C. have told me that they will be getting into touch with my hon. Friend so as to let him know as fully as they can at this stage what their expectations are. The station should brought B.B.C. 2 to more than 1½ million people in south-east Northumberland and the eastern half of Durham.
